Actually recorded in Beatrice Harrison's Garden, Oxted, England; Orthophonic Recordings.
Digitized from a shellac record, at 78 revolutions per minute. Four stylii were used to transfer this record. They are 3.8 mil truncated conical, 2.3 mil truncated conical, 2.8 mil truncated conical, 3.3 mil truncated conical. These were recorded flat and then also equalized with RIAA.
The preferred version suggested by an audio engineer at George Blood, L.P. is the equalized version recorded with the 3.3 mil truncated conical stylus, and has been copied to have the more friendly filename.

Just the Birds
Nature recording of nightingales chirping from the garden of renowned cellist Beatrice Harrison. Harrison frequently made recordings of her playing the cello in her garden accompanied by these nightingales. This specific recording is of just the birds, but they are from Harrison's own garden where she did her recording. An example of her playing "Londonderry Air" with nightingales in her garden can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IU1Z7QtyJVs
